. when that was announced last week, i can tell you that every democrat running for re-election this coming year had a heart attack. my god, a month before the election, half of my constituents are going to get a letter from their insurance company telling them, you're out. and that would be the biggest wipeout of the democratic party in an election we've ever seen. that's what they're facing if they don't change this thing or, i think what they're going to do is try to delay the whole thing past the election. >> there are numbers that have come out, and fox news has done this polling as well to see whether or not people are feeling like taking this issue to the ballot box. and i want to show everybody about trustworthiness and where this administration is. 55% of people surveyed in this fox news poll earlier this month say that they feel like the administration has tried to deceive them about what's really in the affordable care act. that's problematic not just for this president but it becomes an election talking point, i would imagine, at some point. if it holds. >> the democ
thing that really matters is if you're in a down part of the cycle right before an election. so barack obama doesn't have to face the voters anymore. so a lot of this talk about where he stands in the polls is only relevant if it actually leads to defections among democrats. the republicans already oppose him. if his low poll numbers cause democrats to head for the hills, that's when we should start saying it's really significant. so far, that hasn't happened. so the consequences of his low poll numbers are not yet serious. that doesn't mean they might not get serious in the new year if they can't get their act together on the website. if they do get their act together and these patches work, we don't know the antibiotics answer to that question yet, despite the cheerleading from the white house. if it does get better at the beginning part of the new year, he has every opportunity to have a much more successful 2014. and i think what we're starting to see now on this question of the minimum wage, which affects a lot more than kids, the assumption was it used to just be for teenagers. n
our first white elected mayor since the beginning of roam rule if bowser and gray split the american rule vote. this may be the most exciting campaign. >> mayor has his own website. this reelection website very up. are these donors that have been on the sideline until now wondering whether he was going to jump in? are we going to see a lot of money going into this race starting now? >> in a nutshell, yes. they will be jumping in with big money and they will have to pick sides at this point. they have been waiting to see what the mayor will do. >> as you said, an exciting race. thanks, we'll do it again soon. >> also tonight, imagine you order something online today and it shows up at your door in a half hour. >> is that a dream? >> it would be. >> maybe it is a dream. we'll have more on amazon's plan to use drones to deliver packages in just a moment. first, here's a look at the most important moments from your world today in 90 seconds. >> crews used large cranes to lift the topple train cars back on the tracks. the national transportation safety board is analyzing the record
are genuine in sg a new chapter. >> in iran we have political elections an an popular and popr elections. >> they chose a different path this time around. and that election provided a historic opportunity to us and to the west in order to atry tro address us. you. we are not talking about sanctions. when sanctions started iran had less than 200 centrifuges and the note product has been 1880 centrifuges that has been added to iran's stock of centrifuges so sanctions have utterly failed in that regard. it seems to me that the west is trying to take advantage of the historic opportunity. we have a new government and a different approach to foreign policy. our tenants of foreign policy have not changed we insist on our rice rite an rights and we t negotiate. this can be achieved best through construction gea negotiation. >> first of all, what has happened, nick, since this deal was made and are there signs of how this is going to work? >> yeah, john, i think their initial reaction is tentatively positive. iran has allowed inspects yors intinspectors intoa plutonium pl meet in sr sri sr sri v
. you have got to be careful what you say when you are in an election. when you say it's going to be the most transparent administration in history you will be held to that standard. >> what about calling the president a liar. is that okay? i think so. i know bob you don't like it. i'm wondering what bob had for breakfast because i'm nodding my head. i think there is a high bar set by the president. when i worked in washington, d.c., we figured out every way to call our opponent anything but a liar. however, during this last presidential election president obama actually used the term and their staff did on his campaign. it shocked a lot of people that they went there first. now that that bar has been lowered and they are calling each other a liar, i do think it's fair. and either they are grossly incompetent or they are deceitful. either way the credibility has been lost. a lot of people gave him goodwill when oh came in to do obamacare. this touches him personally. >> you are touching on something that's important here. it's the way this president came into the white house an
starting a new chapter? >> well, you see in iran we have political elections. popular elections. they chose ahmadinejad eight years ago. they close a different path this election. this is an opportunity for us and for the west in order to dress this issue. we're not talking about sanctions. the affect of sanctions has been two-fold. when sanctions started you iran had less than 2,000 centerfuges. now iran has 18,000 centerfuges. the sanctions have utterly failed in that regard. now it seems to me that the west is trying to take advantage of this historic opportunity. we have a new government in iran with a different type of foreign policy, a different approach of foreign policy. our tenant versus nos have not . he will insist on our rights. we will not compromise on the basic rights of our people. but the window of opportunity is a limited window. >> that was with iran's foreign minister. >>> alan gross was in north korea working on an internet project fo--incuba working on a. government. he was detained. libby casey has his story. >> alan gross' wife judy describes him as a ma

is very marked in the united states. is there a sense in washington this could become a big election issue? >> i think it could be. one thing the president did mention and white house officials have said is that this is sort of a preview of some of what he'll be talking about in the state of the union speech. not only today is, he's going to be talking about when he gives his state of the union address. that takes us into the midterm election cycle we're going to be seeing getting very, very fierce in the next several months. yes, you're going to hear the president talk about this more. we are dealing with divided government. i mean, they can't even avoid a government shutdown it seems at times. and by the way, that is also looming in the start of next year. and so to think that the republican house of representatives is going to hike the minimum wage, extend emergency unemployment benefits and do all of these other infrastructure and shakes enhance thements that the president would like to do, investments the president would like to do is not realistic at this point and the president is n
's in charge of the republican governor's association which tries to get republicans elected. yesterday chris christie tried to set the record straight. >> mr. asterino hasn't told me or anyone else he's run for governor. i won't support someone who won't say they are running or not. it's much ado about nothing. my guess is some people, irresponsible folks who are trying touring him to run to try to create an image that, you know, i'm urging him to run. i'm not urging him to do anything. he came and asked for time specifically asked for time with me and mary, for he and his wife to meet with the two of us the impact it has on our family. they have young children like we do and that's what the whole conversation was about. when we have a republican nominee for new york then i'll support the republican nominee for new york. >> i had no idea. as he said i was at the republican governor's association. he's westchester, one 2-1 margin as a conservative in a democratic area. but everybody there knew he was running. i don't understand the confusion here. he talked to ed koch and everybody else. >> w
people are going to get sick and die with serious illness and next fall as we head to the 2014 elections, a lot of people who got grandfathered will get cancelled again and get sticker shock right before the elections and people in small businesses will be cancelled out. and the employer man date coming back. there is a list of things to go wrong with this? >> jamu, do you see the same sort of pessimistic outlook in terms of obviously 5 million people who got cancellation letters, and do you see more of those in the future f if that happens with the small businesses? >> no, alisyn. it is not about a first imprigz. la rs can agree we have had a time that lost first game of the season and gone on to win the championship. that's what will happen with the affordable. it is more than political issue. it is life or death. before the affordable care act people could not get health insurance. and speaking of dying and you don't have access to health insurance you die. and the affordable care act, for sure they stumbled out of the gate, but this is not a website. >> a bit more than a stum pel. th
is the website going to play in the 2014 election cycle but we forget that many congressional hopefuls and incumbent members are already running for re-election or running to be elected. how is the website rollout and politics of obama care in general, how is that playing on the ground already? >> it's playing very differently depending on where you are. i'll give you two examples. you probably heard about kentucky where the website is going really well. i know the new york times and "washington post" talked about that a lot. if you go to kentucky, what you hear is that mitch mcconnell is still loud and proud saying we should repeal obama care. and the democratic candidate there running and her name is allison grimes. so far even though kentucky has a good website, she is still very weary of this law. her view is still obama care not going to help you win in kentucky. on the other hand in florida, you have charlie crist, now a democrat, running for governor there. he made one of his big issues the medicate expansion which is popular. florida has not allowed the medicaid expansion. and
where the city is once again reliving the aftermath of hurricane cat trka jury election has begun in the retrial of david warn, a police officer. he was convicted of shooting a man to death days after the storm, but a federal judge overturned his conviction saying he was unfairly tried. al jazeera, ben lemoiny joins us. ben, what can you tell us about this new trial a, and how will be different from the first? >> well, tony, the main reason it's going to be different, the main way it's going to be different is in the first trial, there were three defendants, three new orleans police officers. and an appellate court overruled that ruling last year saying essentially that officer, former new orleans police officer, david warren, should not have been tried with the other officers because the focus in that case was essentially on the alleged coverup of the killing rather than the killing, itself. this trial stands to be more based on the actual evidence, the actual things that went in to the circumstances surrounding this shooting. so, once again, we are going to have a family going t
's always a string attached. the implications down the road, we'll look at the midterm elections next year and, of course, 2016. >> yeah, there could be big ones. the 2014 midterm elections could be costly for the democrats here, especially in state legislative races where you may remember they'll try to hold on to the very precious 2/3 majority which is neutralized republicans. also, with less enthusiasm among key constituencies, there will be a few congressional seats in play in northern california as well, like jerry mcnerney and john garamendi come to mind. critical seats for those folks. then there's the 2016 presidential election. the big one. with these numbers, republicans may want to invest here which at minimum will force democrats to defend their turf and spend money that they might have spent elsewhere here instead. so, yeah, you say 2014, it's a year away, but you know what, with data like this, huh-uh, for republicans, it can't come fast enough. >> yeah, it sets table for a lot of things. thank you, larry. >>> still to come, finally a ray of light for obama care. the presiden

an election in spring 2015. >> there's always the risk, but if you're looking at a better housing market, better mortgage availability, perhaps a eurozone recovery and stronger growth out in the u.s., you're looking at a number of drivers which should, if anything, gain momentum over the next year, year and a half. if i were the chancellor, i wouldn't want to delay the recovery anymore. i'd want that good news story to filter through in terms of the broader economy but also allow households perhaps more time for their own financial improvements to become more receptable. >> lending was up 5.8 billion. participants made efforts down to 5.5 billion during the third quarter. whatever those figures say. the evidence is actually for lenders having less and less of an impact in terms of what the banks were doing. what does the -- what discussions now at the bank this thursday hinge around? clearly the strength of this recovery? as long as we don't get any average meaningful earnings inflation, actually, will they say it doesn't matter if we trigger -- if we go through the threshold -- they don
himself elected, a partisan endeavor, cornell, and didn't bother to check the facts during that whole period, making him a person who's willing to do or say anything to get elected. today's politics are broken because people like president obama say stuff that they can't back up policy wise. and that's his real problem. >> the question was does congressman joe wilson need to apologize like congressman joe wilson did? >> i don't think he should apologize. this is america and you have the right to say what you think u and in today's america you should call it like you see it. you know, the president has been back-pedaling, and this program has been unraveling. and this sis the downfall of ths presidency in many ways. you see his credibility going down. when people stop trusting a politician, it's over. >> okay. so cornell, listen. there's some polling may indicate that it's, you know, cornyn is on, is on the right side of history here maybe -- >> there is no polling that says that cornyn is on the right side of history. there's no polling on that. >> is obama honest and trustworthy? 46%
into victory. >> the way to solve the crisis is through early parliamentary elections. we want a no confidence resolution in the government of ukraine. they should resign. >> pictures have emerged from sunday night showing the police were, at times, brutal in their treatment of protesters and journalists. anton is a photographer. one of dozens who were beaten by riot police. he pleaded with them to stop. these are his bruises. this is all that is left of his camera. the police were on the receiving end. officials say 35 were hurt by protesters. some are in hospital. away from the city center, there are no protests, just the grim routine of life, and a cold winter. this is where we met tatiana, very much in favour of political change. >> we were on our knees for a long time. now it's time to wake up. i'm grateful to the protesters. i want my children and grandchildren to have better lives. >> back in independence square, people are prepared for a long night. in speech after speech ukraine is part of europe. >> there's no sign that protesters are to leave independence square, so the government h
elections. listen to how the president framed the debate over extending unemployment benefits during his speech. here's what the president had to say. >> christmastime is no time for congress to tell more than one million americans that they have lost their unemployment insurance, which is what will happen if congress does not act before they leave on their holiday vacation. >> so sort of painting republicans as ebenezer scrooge there, wolf. then the other thing you heard and you mentioned this as you were tossing it out to me, the president did offer again another stout defense of obama care. he said that republicans owe it to americans to say not just what they're against but what they're for, and on that front, wolf, we should also mention that i an source familiar with enrollment numbers did confirm to cnn within the last couple hours that they enrolled 29,000 people in the first two days since december 1st when the website was supposed to be working for the vast majority of people. 29,000 people. that's more than the number of people that enrolled in october. it's an indication the

elected to the baseball hall of fame along with joe torre and bobby cox. >> awesome. >> it just came in. sal, i know you are aware of that. but you know about our traffic mess on highway 4. >> brilliantly said. i was watching both. i have good news on highway 4. highway 4, the lanes have opened. however, the backup here live from newschopper2 is just ridiculous. it is backed up all the way to antioch and then people say that's normal. this is not normal. this is much busier than it normally is. so you get on the road even all of the lanes are opened, you will be in traffic. you should probably double your commute time. normally it takes you about maybe 40 minutes to get through this. today it will take you more than an hour and i'm just -- i'm trying to be conservative here. hopefully i will be a little bit wrong on the plus side. maybe it won't take you that long. but i'm not that optimistic. i've been doing this a long time. i have to tell you, traffic is very slow. let's take a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. this is a 20 to 25-minute delay. no problems getting onto the upper deck
news if you happen to be a democrat who's running for office in the next two election cycles. now, our expectation is that in time they will eventually be able to operate a website. it would be unfathomable that at some point they would not be able to figure out how to operate a website. what mr. plouffe was talking about there and the significance that the disruption that's underneath. remember, the website is just how people try to buy insurance. but the disruption that's underneath, which is the people losing insurance, and then those who manage to make it through to try to purchase insurance through the website, the high premiums that they find, the difficulties that they find, that is an enormous problem for democrats and for the white house or for a former top adviser to the president to be saying in public, yeah, the next two election cycles are going to be a little rough, but on the other side the president's legacy is secure, that's pretty slim solace. >> what about this deadline now. we're already on december 2nd today. isn't there going to be mass chaos for people trying to
gop isn't exactly wing hearts and minds. >> the election is like which party will commit suicide last. the republicans messed up with the government shutdown, now the obama website. the concern next we'll see. >> joining me political writer, "daily beast" columnist sally cohn and contributor editor wallace walls. from washington, no longer in auburn gear although i expect his team spirit is soaring former white house secretary and founding partner of the insight agency robert gibbs. robert, i'll start with you. i will use football metaphors for fans at home and fans on set. is the white house -- is healthcare.gov are we seeing end to end a la auburn last night? is this a major play we're seeing on december 1st or are we in the middle of the field right now? >> i think the obama administration should be glad it appears to be first and ten again. it's no longer third and 35. we're a long way from 109 yard field goal return. look, i think you summed it up quite well. the users experience on the front end is greatly enhanced for most people that are using it. i never get tired of watching
election? >> well, basically, you got to look at her as a very strange woman. she has two husbands. one's name is bill, the other's name is barack. she can't divorce either one of them. she's going to have to hug them, warts and all, and run with them. if she turns against this president at any point before she has this thing wrapped up, the base is not going to have it. this president has come back from the dead 57 times. he will be back. but she cannot get away from him any more than she can from bill clinton. >> complicated. a.b., i'm not going to follow up on the two husband metaphor. that was van jones, cnn, ladies and gentlemen. that's all his. but a.b., there's a provocative piece in politico today with a quote from our friend who says that hillary clinton is the liferaft on obama's sinking ship. alex is talking about the now, saying that democrats who want to split from the president even now can look somewhat to hillary clinton for safe harbor. do you see that happening, democrats in a way distancing themselves from the president and trying to move to her now? >> well, she's no
in america who's worked harder for his re-election or supported this bill or went out of his way to explain the bill to the american people more than idi >> that's president wolf, on health reform, obama care, and what he said, you know, created a lot of controversy. >> yeah. he obviously does support the president. hillary clinton, as you and all of our viewers know is the overwhelming democti favorite president in2016ingor what does the former president say about his wife and 2016? >> he is saying he doesn't know if she's going to run or not. >> is mrs. clinton running for president? >> i don't know. and i think and she believes that the country should spend at least another year working very hard on the problems we have. we w haveery serious challenges in america. and we have responsibilities around the world. i think it's a big mistake, you know, this constanten four-year campaign is not good for america. we nee to deal with the business we have before us. >> wolf, i did ask him ask the former president what he thought of vice president biden as a possible president in 20716. he says he
is going to be very interesting when it comes to the midterm elections, not only to see if democrats lose their seats in the senate but see how democrats campaign. will they campaign on obamacare like dnc chairwoman debbie wasserman-schultz suggested or will they continue to run away from it and try their best to look back at their own promises to say, i'm really sorry. i think they will have to make statements we didn't tell you the truth. we're sorry bit. we'll do everything to get your plans back. those plans are gone. that trust is gone. you look at polling. look at the polling of president and congress as a whole, people are really not happy about this going back we talk about short memories. 2010 was a landslide year for republicans based on obamacare. that is not even at time when it is bad as it is now. looking at 2014. it will be interesting to see how democrats campaign. martha: touches the lives of so many people and we are going to be seeing that moment of president obama saying if you like your health care plan you can keep it, as you can bet, over and over and over again in
the republicans fear more in a general election? >> i think hillary clinton is ultimately the more formidable democratic nominee. joe biden is widely seen as a democrat who does well with white working class voters. that's one reason why he was seen as a big asset to the obama ticket. that's one reason why he might, you know, prove relatively successful. but ultimately hillary clinton is someone to the surprise of some republicans who has a lot of appeal with women, particularly mod raterate and low-income women including some women who are republicans. hillary clinton has surprising crossover appeal. i'm not sure joe biden has the same crossover appeal particularly because he's been, frankly, so gaffe prone. >> juan carlos also asked the former president about comments he made saying that the current president, president obama, should honor his commitment to make sure if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. there seemed to be a little tension at the time. this is how he explained what he said. >> i said nothing about this. not one word until the president, hims
